“Social Entrepreneurship joins the sustainability and scalability strength of entrepreneurship with the in depth impact of social endeavors and NGOs”.

“Building a successful social enterprise over the years was a dream, but keeping this success for ourselves is selfish. Our purpose from joining LSE and working under its umbrella was recognizing and building the capabilities of other existing social enterprises as competitive, sustainable businesses, dedicated to maximizing social impact above shareholder profit”.

LSE is a fertile ground for partnership development between social entreprises. Collaboration among members, complementarity in actions and most important is transparency and communication. LSE is the best potential for the development of the sector in Lebanon.

Working at L’artisan du Liban has taught me not only a new way of doing business, but also a new way to have social impact: and that’s what Social entrepreneurship is about. LSE has the mission and the power to grow this business model in Lebanon


Elie Rouhana

Board member

My aim is to elevate waste management and social entrepreneurship through co-creation. Recognizing the limitations of conventional solutions, I envision gathering stakeholders from all sectors to collectively design innovative waste management systems. This approach not only revolutionizes waste practices but also inspires a broader culture of cooperation within the broader social enterprise community. I believe in the far-reaching potential of co-creation in driving sustainable solutions and fostering a more harmonious and equitable world.


Benoit Berger

Board member

Fair trade and social entrepreneurship are two sides of the same coin: If the first emphasizes fair relations between economic agents, the second highlights the importance of ethical governance in the activity of creating wealth. Witness to the expansion of neoliberalism and the disasters it generates, my commitment to fair trade naturally extends to social entrepreneurship.
